WiFi is set to 802.11g, What I did to get a better wifi signal is to setup a second wifi hotspot in my house right next to my xbox360. I setup the secondary wifi, and a pass though router, does not have DHCP, Firewall, NAt or anything. Its more like a wireless hup. I used the fios one as my main router, with IP of and the pass thought belkin at, and set DHCP on to fios router only with a range of - With this setup I am able to stream HD shows from my vista media center, that I was not able to from my fios router that was about 15 feet from my 360. I hope this helps, let me know if you need more help..
